Description

The life of St Francis is copiously recorded in several near-contemporary biographies of him. From these is drawn an account of his astonishingly influential life as a devoted follower of Jesus. This book skilfully weaves together the historical narrative with memorable stories such as the Wolf of Gubbio and the Sermon to the Birds to create a book that can be enjoyed as a whole or tackled in shorter episodes. The result is an inspiring and heartwarming book.show more
